Mother Knows Best/Disney Villains Series – Spoiler Free

Hola (I'm currently learning Spanish, soz) Mother Knows Best is the fifth book in the Disney Villains series. I thought I'd reviewed some of the others but clearly I haven't and just thought about it but never got round to it. Story of my life... These books give a bit of background about the villains… Continue reading Mother Knows Best/Disney Villains Series – Spoiler Free

The Language of Kindness: A Nurse’s Story

The Red Dog story in particular was wonderful: how clever Mowgli was in getting the… Continue reading The Jungle Books – 2

The Jungle Books – 1

Hello. I'm currently reading the Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling, thanks to my very generous boyfriend lending me his gorgeous clothback Penguin edition (thanks babe). Now ideally I would do a mini review on each story as I go along but I didn't pluck up the courage (or motivation, I can't lie) to start this… Continue reading The Jungle Books – 1

The Journey Begins

And so it begins. I'm Nicola, I'm 20 and I love reading (that sounds like the beginning to an AA meeting...). Always have, always will. I read about 40-50 books a year and one of my favourite things to do is snuggle up in bed with a hot chocolate and a book in winter or… Continue reading The Journey Begins
